At the latest when temperatures above the 7° mark are reached for the first time in spring, you should think about
fitting summer tyres, because unlike winter tyres they are optimised for the warmer weather conditions. In order to adapt to the higher temperatures, summer tyres differ from their winter counterparts mainly in two respects, namely their rubber compound and their tread pattern. The material of the summer tyre should have different properties, so it is important that it is not too soft and that it can handle well even in hot weather conditions. The tread is also designed differently from a winter tyre, so it provides excellent grip and low rolling friction even in warm weather. This ensures good driving stability, shorter braking distances and also reduces fuel consumption. There are also differences between the two types of tyres in terms of tread depth: the recommended tread depth for winter tyres is 4 mm, whereas a tread depth of 3 mm is recommended for summer tyres. Legally the required tread depth is only 1.6mm.
It is advisable to follow the E-O rule when buying, which means that the tyres should be fitted - depending on the current temperatures, of course - from around Easter to October. To be able to buy suitable tyres for the summer, it is necessary to know certain parameters such as the correct tyre size and tyre diameter. These characteristics are shown on the tyre sidewalls.
